example, take for example president obama's inaugural address this week. conservatives of course were outraged that it was such a liberal speech. liberals were delighted that it was such a liberal speech. and everybody agreed that it was such a profoundly liberal speech that the president gave for his second inaugural address. and it wasn't just liberal in the abstract. it was liberal in the specific, in the sense that he proposed and endorsed a whole bunch of liberal policy ideas. like for example, his endorsement in the speech of marriage equality. it was a big moment in the speech, right? because no president had ever talked about gay people before, ever before in any inaugural address. it was also a landmark thing for this president, who did not publicly support same-sex marriage rights until well into his time being president. but there it was right in the inaugural address, calling for narn marriage equality. right there in the inaugural address. that is freaking liberal. also, that is the majority view held by most americans. the nbc/"wall street journal" poll that came out las

? >> i think the imperial attitude is coming out of the obama white house. you saw this last week he came out with 23 executive orders related to guns and issues there. so i think we are going to continue to see this president over reach and do things that he wasn't able to do legislatively. >> this idea of executive orders does seem extraordinary. paul bagoalo working for president clinton stroke of the pen law of the land kind of cool. >> this is a president that i think has gone way beyond that in terms of the number of regulations that have come out under this administration in what are called significant regulations which have an impact of over $100 million. those are the things hurting our economy making it harder to get people back to work and making it harder for hard-working taxpayers. >> to be fair to president obama he's not the first to do this by any means even george washington did this, teddy roosevelt did many more nixon's wage and price control executive order. peace corps is an executive order. there is precedent. >> there is but if you go back to the founding fathers if

this week that the republican party top to bottom has to start taking barack obama seriously. he means to change america in fundamental ways and along the lines of justice as he sees it. the proper response to such a man is not that he's a muslim or a kenyan. those charges were meant to marginalize him, but they didn't hurt him. they damaged republicans. it will take guts and unity to fight him. can the gop just in washington now develop those things? i think it's a good charge to republicans. she's saying you've deluded yourself with these nonsensical charges of birtherism, and it's hurt you more than it's ever hurt him. >> i agree with you, peggy noonan is one of the smart ones. i don't agree with much of what she says, but i think she's a smart woman. the base isn't reading "the wall street journal" editorial page. they have been fed for 30, 40 years this sort of insanity and the belief that their views are absolutely right. that the idea of calling democrats marxists and socialists and being extreme on abortion, that's not just right, but fundamentally american. it's more american
on president obama's foreign policy challenges in his second term. what's the meaning of the election in israel this week as that gets sorted out and netanyahu tries to build a new government? there's the threat of iran, what do we make of it? >> well, we have to see what government actually is formed, it's a coalition government in israel. i think it's likely now to be a center-right government rather than the right wing rump government that looked likely given the pulse before the election. that is essentially better news. it means that israel is going, i think, to be more willing to engage in making peace with the palestinians. that the two-stage solution which is on life support at the moment has a chance to breathe again. i wouldn't take it further than that, but there's a limited sliver of hope put it that way in that regard. when it comes to iran, i don't think the election changes things that much. essentially this is an american-led problem. and as much as netanyahu threatens force, i think he will take the lead from president obama who has made it clear he's not going to allow iran to

start with your take on obama's inaugural address last week and what you described in your "usa today" column as a difference between civil rights and civil liberties under this administration? guest: the inauguration speech was picking up a very common and almost mantra in the obama administration of achieving equality, which is a noble and important goal. i think the most significant thing about the inauguration speech, which are particularly thought was wonderful, was his reference to gay-rights and to the gay movement. it established his commitment to equality. i want to note that he has not been particularly aggressive in supporting gay rights in his first administration. his administration in court argued the same arguments as the bush administration. he still refuses to make clear his position on key legal aspects of gay-rights. and so, the first term obama was not nearly as passionate as that speech would suggest. but what was missing once again was a discussion of civil liberties. i think it does reflect this grewat this-- -- great schism in the democratic and liberal commun

] well, america's rising debt is going to be an issue that president obama's going to have to deal with early in his second term, after raising taxes and offering no spending cuts a few weeks back, here is what president obama said monday about the debt ceiling. >> so i want to be clear about this, the debt ceiling is not a question of authorizing more spending. raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending, it simply allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. >> mike: well, according to the congressional record, in 2006, then senator barack obama had this statement just before a debt ceiling vote and i quote, the fact that we are here today to debate raising america's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure, it's a sign that the u.s. government can't pay its own bills, it's a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government's reckless fiscal policies. leadership means that the buck stops here. instead, washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today on the backs of our
enough to be living with debates that were not cruel reality shows. every week, there were debates among the democratic candidates. barack obama embodied change. it seemed he brought into politics a generation of young people and minorities who never thought of the electoral system as a vehicle for change. so many people saw in him the possibility of change that would come quickly. my sense is that it is so corroded that we need to take back a government that has been rigged against working people, ordinary people, the poor. we need to understand it will take more than one election cycle to bring about fundamental change in this country. it will take wind at the back of the president and political system to bring about change. president obama -- this is not a political time when roosevelt lived in. the labor movements are not as strong. today there was a story about the tea party move -- losing its mojo. we're seeing overreach that has led people to this tipping point moment where millions of people have said enough. the obscene inequality in this country colliding with downward mobility

full week into president obama's second term, and a theme already seems to be emerging from republicans, including john boehner. it's that the president is on a mission to annihilate the gop and push a far left agenda, and they point to his inaugural speech as evidence where the president said things like, well, this. >> preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action, medicare and medicaid and social security. these things do not sap our nation. they strengthen us. we will respond to the threat of climate change. our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. >> joining me now bill schneider, resident fellow third way, washington think tank and tara mcguinnes senior vice president of communications at the center for american progress. hello to both of you. >> hey, thanks for having us. >> bill, let's start with the speech. not just conservatives here who say that it was progressive. salon.com calling it the most liberal speech of obama's presidency. did the president miss a chance here to reach out to

duck? they can't fly far. they are lucky if they get off the ground. last week, president obama laid out his fight plan for the heights of to which he hopes to soar in his second term. his agenda may never find its wings if it is stymied in the tangle of capitol hill gridlock. a seemingly endless series of cliffs, ceilings sequesters and showdowns. the upcoming budget fight is only the first of many. remember the fiscal cliff? well, it never really went away. it was postponed for a couple months. we have the threat of automatic spending cuts looming over our heads march 1s. government shutdown on the 27th. we'll need a new spending bill to keep it going. mark your calendars march 19th when the delayed debt ceiling crisis could come back to haunt us. the budget battle and considering the behavior of possums and ducks begs the question of when those responsible for governing will act more like the people we have elected them to be and less like political animals. with me at the table, arie, vickie, assistant dean, robert and co-founder of no label, david walker, the formal head of the
about since 2009. four years ago this week, obama gave an interview to the washington post. this has to be the generation that tackles this once and for all. yesterday, quite the contrast. he rejects the small choice between our investments in our baby boomer generation and our investments in the future, which he means spending right now on everybody. dagen: do think that this is just a speech? back cannot pay out 100% of benefits. that day is about 11 years out. >> he is wrong, actually. entitlements right now are 37% of federal outlays. they will be 50% in 2030. democrats are saying you cannot touch social security and medicare. if you do, it has to be our way which is obamacare. otherwise, we will not even talk to. democrats are no longer interested in the type of entitlement that they used to talk about under clinton and gore. connell: you heard reports that he was given on something like raising the retirement age, for example. that was all over the place. if you are the republicans, how do you cover this politically? >> they took a baby step with this debt ceiling thing saying
is the criticism against you. and it was written about in the new york magazine blog this week, which goes to whether you want to expand the base of the party. here's what he writes. obama is arguing that misfortune can strike americans in all forms. a sdabt, a storm, illness, or merely outliving our savings. ryan's budget imposes savage cuts to food stamps, children's health insurance, and other mitigations of suffering for the least fortunate. and ryan also voted against relief for victims of hurricane sandy. by ryan's definition, if the government is rebuilding your destroyed home, you're a taker too. >> look, this is a straw man argument. the president said earlier that we had suspicions about medicare and taking care of the elderly and feeding poor children. when he sets up these straw men, to affix views to add ver sears that they don't have, to win the argument by default, it's not an honest debate. we want to have a safety net. a safety net that's there for the vulnerable, poor, for people who cannot help themselves. but we don't want to have a culture in this country that encourag

five, president obama and hillary clinton are parting ways. secretary clinton is leaving her job at the state department next week. the two sat down for an interview with 60 minutes. an exit interview of sorts. clinton talked about how she felt it was her duty to take the job while the president wanted to highlight her selfless service. >>> the line of talk around hillary clinton is centered around what is next. she says she just wants some down time, she's ready to leave washington behind, but as we have all come to know, don't ever count hillary out. >> this is not the first time hillary clinton seemed to say good-bye. >> i am determined to leave the state department and our country safer, stronger, and more secure. >> when you just knew she'd be back to say hello. she launched herself back in the days of the nerdy circular glasses as the woman who could take tradition and crack it like a nut. she and bill clinton met and fell in love at yale. then in 1974, she moved to arkansas to teach making partner at the rose law firm five years later. she kept working after her husband wa

the notification this week from boeing, which said deliveries will be on schedule for april. president obama is expected to go along with a debt limit measure being considered by the house. the house plans a vote today on a measure that puts the debt limit increase on pause until may, but allows the country to continue paying its bills. in the senate, democratic and republican leaders are hinting at getting down to the real business of pounding out a budget. "not a single piece of important legislation can pass the senate or become law without the votes of both democrats and republicans. so we'll be willing to compromise and work with our colleagues across the aisle." "if we don't work together to control the debt, the cost of our interest payments alone will eventually crowd out funding for things we all agree on, from defense to infrastructure and assistance for those who need it most." in other legislative news, the house has already approved a $50-billion aid package for hurricane sandy relief, and senate majority leader harry reid said yesterday the senate could move swiftly to pass it.
] and not have to worry about the law. obama was very interesting. in my defense, a week before or two weeks before the election in l.a., i routed column suffering from myself rather severely, to use a romney word, from some of my colleagues on the right to have defected to obama and i named them. i said i was going down with the mccain ship because i knew it was going out and i would not waver. i never imagined i would support obama over mccain. i was very strongly for mccain. i thought he was a very good man. he did not run a very strong campaign. we seem to have a habit of doing that. but here's what was interesting about obama. if you remember the transition, he made very centrist appointments. for example, he kept the gates at the fence. he picked geithner for treasury, who had worked hand in glove with the bush administration through the financial crisis. he picked hillary as secretary of state. blogger was one of the major advisers. volcker was one of the major red visors. when he ran in 2008, he ran as a roar short chest. he was not a very disturbing the radical candidate. that was t

more in the past week about dr. king than we talked about george washington. he's really become the pillar, i think, of moral consciousness for the new patriotism that obama is for. but he didn't stop with african-americans. he's now expanding it. he's talking about the lesbian and gay struggle, talking about latinos. wanting this new american patriotism to include everybody. i say there's a difference now between the liberty only form of patriotism that you her from some people in the far right. liberty and justice for all patriotism, and this speech, i think, is really going to mark that new patriotism. >> can i jump in on that other thing, similarities? king was on the whole poverty conversation and the justice, poverty, you know, next question about justice, the next thing was about poverty, but there's a connection there with obama also. remember, when obama first graduated from ivy league college, he didn't go to wall street or k street in d.c., he went and became a community organizer, working on issues of poverty. a lot of people sort of on the left would argue, and espe
